If you haven’t yet heard of the Saatchi Gallery but are keen to see some new, emerging and high quality art during your trip to London, it is one well worth adding to your shortlist. Founded in 1985 by Charles Saatchi, The Saatchi Gallery is the top London gallery for contemporary art and showcases a range of well known and up and coming artists. If you’re going to be visiting The Saatchi Gallery soon, here are five artists to look out for:

museum show

Bram Bogart

Bram Bogart was a Dutch-born Belgian artist whose works are often associated with boldness and strict form. Over the course of his artistry, Bogart created a number of wonderful pieces and his talents are currently being showcased at The Saatchi Gallery in an exhibition entitled ‘Witte de Witte’. The exhibition includes a number of Bogart’s rare monochrome works created between 1952 and 2006, highlighting his achievements despite the lack of colour. ‘Witte de Witte’ illustrates the differences between Bogart’s works in the 50s and 60s compared to those previously, where he shifted towards abstract art and material surface painting.

Olly Fathers

Olly Fathers is an up and coming artist who is currently being featured as part of The Saatchi Gallery’s ‘Ecstatic Rays’ exhibition. The exhibition showcases nine emerging artists – including Fathers – and their artworks. The artworks in the exhibition have been created using a variety of different media such as painting, photography, collage, drawing and printmaking. Fathers explores different subjects and his pieces are impressive.

Harry Jones

Harry Jones is another artist who is being featured in The Saatchi Gallery’s ‘Ecstatic Rays’ exhibition. Like Fathers, Jones is an up and coming artist who is relatively new to the gallery, though his works are already proving popular. The Saatchi Gallery is close by to the Park Grand London Kensington so it’s easy to see Jones’ work along with the other exciting featured works.

Her Highness Sheikha Khawla Bint Ahmed Bin Khalifa Al Suwaidi

Currently at The Saatchi Gallery, visitors can check out an exhibition featuring the works of Her Highness Sheikha Khawla Bint Ahmed Bin Khalifa Al Suwaidi. This is the first UK solo exhibition for the Emirati poet and artist, and it features a range of Andalusian – Arab calligraphy inspired by her poetry. A lot of her writing reflects her experiences in life and they focus on human values, forgiveness, humility, love and peace. The exhibition is entitled ‘Peace and Love’ and it is running until 18th August 2017. If you’re staying at one of the nearby London budget hotels or the Park Grand London Kensington, visit The Saatchi Gallery and check out her work for yourself.

Pakal

Very little is known about Pakal, just that he or she is an established street artist and Pakal is their alter ego. There’s a range of Pakal’s art pieces at The Saatchi Gallery, many of which are for sale. The artwork is free, vivid and created using different materials.
